The National Defense welcomes the director of the fantastic film "Kilo Two
Bravo." Paul Katis, to the program to discuss his new film and the process of
accurately telling this gripping story. "Kilo Two Bravo" is the story of a
company of British soldiers who found themselves pinned down in a minefield in
the Helmand Province of Afghanistan in 2006. The film is available in many
theaters across the country, as well as online. For more information, check out
the webiste for "Kilo Two Bravo."
Come Back Home was written in the wake of me losing my longtime drummer and former Army soldier John C. Williams. But the song started off as a reflection of how a military couple deals with separation. After the release of Come Back Home, Johns little brother was killed by an IED in Iraq. His name was Blake Williams. His platoon used this track as the audio to a memorial slide show presentation they did in March of 2008. It was for all the courageous men and women they had lost in the month of March.
I am humbled by their service to our great country and I hope this song brings them some peace. My father served in Vietnam and I truly appreciate their dedication and bravery."
